The inventive spelling of the title reads somewhat silly in Norwegian and Danish since the Ø in broken is a letter in the alphabet in these languages and sounds like the "u" in "burden". In addition "brøken" is the Norwegian and Danish word meaning "the fraction". See more »
In the beginning of the movie, when she is examining X-rays, she shows her assistant a case of Situs Inversus. This refers to people who are born with one or more organs reversed in position. She states that the condition is very rare, occurring only once in every 1000 births. In truth, Situs Inversus occurs once in every 10,000 births. See more »

Who are these for?
Well, do you notice anything?
They're back to front?
No, look. Left and right tags.
The heart's on the right side of the body?
Dextrocardia with situs inversus. It's not uncommon, but it's pretty rare. One in every thousand.

I read about this movie in a magazine and I was intrigued. A woman, who one day sees herself drive past in her own car. Well, I thought, this could be interesting...
...but it isn't. First, the title. The Broken? The Broken...what? What is broken? The...oh, wait...I get it, the title itself is "broken"! WOW, clever! Unfortunately, this is virtually the only thing going for it.
The premise is not that bad, but I think Kiefer Suderland did much better in 'Mirrors'. A cross between Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Mirrors, and a rather mediocre one at that. A more suited title would be 'The Boring', since it draws out every single scene for bloody ages. Or maybe 'The Confusing' since it doesn't explain anything at all, not in the narrative nor in the story itself, only some vague idea about evil copies and somesuch, dotted with cheap scares and scenes used to death, but nothing tangible. It's just messed up.
On the other hand, the acting and the special effects are quite good, but then again, it's not a difficult role to act.
After watching the movie twice, I still feel unsatisfied, a little confused maybe, and not in the E. A. Poe or Stephen King kind of way. Do yourself a favor, and don't watch this one. Simply put, there are better thrillers out there.
